Happy Friday everyone! I’m back in NYC and I think it’s colder here than it was in Iceland. We’re in the middle of a snow storm, but nevertheless, it’s great to be home! I have so many photos and information I want to share with you and when I tried putting it all in one blog post, it was way too long. So today, we’re going to cover Vik.
Great article here. I’ve been running my healthcare blog for a few months and have just recently started to spend more time on it (learning wordpress, marketing strategies, etc). I’m noway near earning anything from it yet but with effort and time, hope to establish myself as a leading pharmacy blogger. A DIY queen, this blogger creates easy to follow makeup (and crafts) videos that have helped her rack up the social media following. She’s also a body positive, plus size fashionista!
Once I’ve decided on the keyword, I spend the next four days creating the right content. Before I start writing, I’ve to make sure, I’ve identified the pain points and supporting information that’ll help me write an engaging content. Gosh, one thing I would’ve done differently would have been to start wordpress instead of blogger. I’m really regretting it now because I can totally see all the massive benefits of having wordpress over blogger but I don’t know how to move my entire blog without losing followers or content (any suggestions would be greatly appreciated).
Clem – we are currently posting blogs on previous trips away and on things based around planning our trip. We find it makes us do more research in the first place, but even if we never make anything out of the blog other than having somewhere that we hold all our travel memories, we’ll be happy. I really appreciate this post and all that you share! Hopefully one day I can grow bigger and see it really come to fruition! Don’t ask too many questions. As a rule of thumb, 5 to 10 questions are enough to make a compelling interview.
But the most important thing is that you enjoy writing about a niche. Luxury travel might be a good niche for example, but I would hate writing about 5 star hotels all the time. You need to find something that you personally enjoy, where there is also a market/opportunity for it. Always keep your emails really short. Don’t use long paragraphs. Cut the crap and don’t tell your stories. No one really has time to read long and boring emails. The best way to get a response to your emails is keep them short. Whew! That’s quite a long list, but here’s another tip: you don’t have to do all of these yet. Pick three and work them into your blogging habits. Once those become second nature, pick three more. Before you know it, you’ll be saving time you didn’t think you had.
